The 57 Ridings that can Change Election's Outcome

Hill Times journalists Abbas Rana, Simon Doyle and Harris MacLeod have assembled a list of 57 ridings in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec, where the parties won or lost by a margin of about five per cent or less in the last federal election. This is a superset of what Michael Geist called the Copyright MPs which won their riding by 10 percent or less in the last election and their riding is home to a university.

I cannot claim to be as knowledgeable about these issues as perhaps you would like. My area of expertise is medicine and public health. Nevertheless, I fully support your point of view and would be supportive of your perspective.

I do not know that I can use the word pledge. A definition of pledge includes a binding commitment to do or give or refrain from something; I am unwilling to give a binding commitment but I am will state that I agree with your position and oppose efforts to subvert the open exchanges of the internet.

I asked a colleague who is knowledgeable in this area and he fully supports your position. I will endeavour to maintain a reasonable level of understanding of the issues and to ask for guidance where needed and insist on evidence to support attempts to interfere.
